I don't know why I didn't see that coming! Well done, and upon a second reading, you definitely played "fair" with your readers.

A few minor grammatical errors to tweak, and I think the last line could be strengthened...

...but I really appreciated what you did here! And if true, my heart goes out to you.
They do crawl in to our hearts don't they! Nice twist!
Excellently written- half-anticipated the ending, but I was thinking canine. Well done.

As the owner of 4 cute kitties my heart went out to you! I was surly surprised a the ending, I never guessed who Jack was! Well done.
Yes, this was very sad. I'm glad I got to read this. We take so much for granted. Good writing.
Our very favorite of all our cats was named Jack. He also came to a bad end. You certainly did a good job of bringing out the emotion of sadness in this story.
